Medellín, Antioquia

Daniela is Venezuelan. When she learnt she was pregnant she decided to flee her home country because of the ongoing economic crisis. She wanted to find a safer place to raise her baby Liam that’s why she went to Colombia and found a shelter in San Rafael. Here Daniela is taking care of the kid of another single mother, busy washing clothes. It's @marietihon, and I'm here to share my serie "Gracias a Dios" about single mothers in Colombia who found a safe place to raise their babies in the San Rafael Hogar in Medellin. According to UN studies, over 35% of children age 0-14 live in single-parent families. The majority headed by women struggling to achieve financial stability in Colombia due to gender gaps in wage and employment, and the discriminatory effects of machismo. This problem is compounded by a lack of affordable childcare and education, and limited government capacity to deliver services.                 Affiliated HL accounts: @studiohanslucas  @hl_grand_ouest  @hl.mediterranee  @hl.benelux @hl_occitanie @hl.marseille @hl.lille  @hl.grandest  Visit our page on: latinamerica.hanslucas.com

Sara, 27 years old, and her baby Pamela. Sara's father has been killed by paramilitaries and her entire family was displaced. Being a victim of the armed conflict and also being rejected by her sister when she was pregnant was very painful for her. Sara suffered from being left alone. She said it's a real sacrifice to live in the San Rafael Hogar because of the rules and also because she didn't know anyone there. But for her baby she was ready to do whatever she needs to do. And with time, she noticed she receives great support in the shelter. She has the opportunity to learn art crafts and wants to study mathematics as part of her dream for a better life. Sara wants to give Pamela all what she never had.

Hermana Ligia is a really dynamic religious sister and she did her best to renovate the rooms inside the shelter San Rafael in order to welcome more single mothers. She explains that mothers here come from their own will. Sometimes they are referred by social workers but most of the time the father ran away and never showed up again. "The girls here really care about their children and they want to offer them a new life" says Ligia who is aware that for those women it's not always easy to cope with the rules of the shelter.

San Luis Potosi, Mexico

Here Doña Mari looking for the best place where to put this photograph of her own wedding, so I can reproduce it. As I was telling before, working in a collaborative way, winning people's trust so they open to me their family archives, is a work as much important as photographing. Framing this pic in a way the hands which support the archive are visible, is a way to show the relationships which make the work possible and remain most of the time out of stage. The 2nd photograph will introduce tomorrow's publication. They are little knifes attached to roasters legs's to they can fight till death. * This week @masia.wola aka Marianne Wasowska, presenting "Naming the Shine", long term project in Wirikuta desert, Mexico.

Horse races are an one of the main entertainments in the desert's communities. They take place in middle of nowhere: removing plants from few kilometers of land, and ready. Jockey can be kids, they ride without sit of shoes. Here Lupe, 15 years old, was showing me his best champeon before next race. * @masia.wola aka Marianne Wasowska, presenting this week "Naming the Shine", long term project in Wirikuta desert, Mexico.

San Luis Potosi, Mexico

I was telling you before that part of the work i did with desert inhabitants has been studying the way people were representing themselves. This led me to collect archives from family albums, that showed me past generations but also life in USA, since most of the families of this area are splited between their village and what is called "el otro lado", "the other side". In order to understand transmition among generations, I also collected celphone pictures from teenagers and organised photography workshops in primary and secundary schools of the desert. It's important for me, in this kind of approach which gets close to anthropology, to include the people I'm working with in the process, as much as possible. I try to avoid to speak about a community in its place, or tell people's story without the people; I feel it should be a concern shared by every documentary photographer. ○ Land where 'peyote', hallucinogene cactus, grows, Wirikuta desert, in north of Mexico, has been visited since thousand of years in pilgrimation by the Huicholes indians (wixaritaris). However in 2011 a mining company found gold and silver in its ground and planed to buy it from the mexican nation, to turn it in a huge and devastating extraction project. Between Huicholes' indian and mining companies, another community is directly affected by the territory's future: local farmers who live in the desert, in small villages lost in the inmensity. The whole project pretends to focus on each community's point of vue and representation of one same land, this sacred desert; studying the tools they use to represent themselves and build their relation with space.

San Luis Potosi, Mexico

Hi fellas, still @masia.wola proposing you to overfly this week the Wirikuta desert in Mexico. * I was talking to you yesterday about drought and cactuses; last years lack of water has been so big than even cactuses began to die, like this nopal tree. Situation difficult to handle for local inhabitants, who mostly live from agriculture and breeding, but also massively migrate to USA. In the years (2010-2011) where the mining company was working on convincing people to allow the project, the struggle they had been passing because of drought influenced many of them to welcome this mining project. * Land where 'peyote', hallucinogene cactus, grows, it has been visited since thousand of years in pilgrimation by the Huicholes indians (wixaritaris).

This week the take over will be rided by me, Marianne Wasowska aka @masia.wola , french photographer currently based in Buenos Aires. The work I'll share with you this week is extracted from the first chapter of a long term project I began in 2011 in the Wirikuta desert in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. * Land where 'peyote', hallucinogene cactus, grows, it has been visited since thousand of years in pilgrimation by the Huicholes indians (wixaritaris).

Feeling closer to anthropology than journalism, I used cartography, sound records, photographical archives of the people who accepted to show it to me, and also developed photo and video workshop for youngs in partnership with local schools. * On this picture, one of the thousands cactus species present in this desert, which makes it one of the richest natural reserve in Mexican fauna and flora. This extremely dry context also leads to big lacks of water, which makes every drop and fruit a gift.

Peru

In Pucaurquillo as in the many villages along the Amazon River, the inhabitants take their bath on the river banks. • I’m Jack Solle, French photographer based in Buenos Aires. I’m sharing with you this week some images from « Andes to Amazon », a black and white photographic journey I made in 2016 in the heart of Peru, from the Andean summits to the Amazonian jungle, between the imaginary Inca and daily life along the Great River. • • • Affiliated HL accounts : @studiohanslucas @hl.lille @hl.grandest @hl.benelux @hl_occitanie @hl.marseille @hl.mediterranee

Fátima, Loreto, Peru

The mornings spent on the Amazon are the perfect opportunity to see the many fishermen sail on their makeshift boats. My encounter with Benjamin or « Benja » will forever live in my memories. This former caiman hunter and full-time fisherman will be my guide in the depths of the thriving Amazonian rainforest. For a couple of weeks, I will be sailing at his side, on his boat, switching between cast-net fishing and various stops in the villages bordering the Great River. • I’m @jacksolle_ , French photographer based in Buenos Aires.
